serving Chorizo Potato Egg SkilletThis skillet uses up leftover mashed potatoes to make a creamy, dreamy breakfast treat with a perfectly cooked egg in the middle. You don't need to use your oven to get a nice all-over baked touch, you can make this right on the stove. Chorizo has so many awesome flavours in it, you don't need salt or spices. This dish is really easy to make!


I made this a personal skillet just for myself, but you can multiply the ingredients and use a bigger pan to feed more. If you'd like your egg on the looser side, lift the lid earlier in the process.
